Summer is here, which means sun dress season is in full force! Wearing a dress is so effortless and I always feel more put together in a dress than in shorts and a tee. Whether its running errands, a trip to the farmers market, or dinner out with B, you can find me in a dress this summer!
I’ve rounded up my favorite dresses and accessorized them with the cutest handbags and sandals for all kinds of summer occasions and festivities! Enjoy…
Wine Tasting — This ensemble would be perfect for an afternoon of wine tasting. A casual dress, comfy wedges, bold handbag, and rockin’ sunnies make this the ideal outfit for the vineyards. Don’t forget to pack a picnic basket — I love a good meat and cheese plate paired with fresh, seasonal fruit!
Going to a Museum — Whether its an exhibit on art, history, or science, I love exploring museums! An artsy tunic dress, low wedge espadrilles, and cross body bag make it easy to take in all the sights. Don’t forget a denim jacket for when the AC kicks on and if you’re on the hunt to find a new museum, be sure to check out this book.
Farmers’ Market — I love hitting up the Farmers’ Market on the weekends. A denim shirt dress is cool enough to wear outdoors and comfortable enough to walk around in to find a carton of free range, organic eggs. Pair it with a Panama hat, sneakers, and a large straw tote to carry all of the veggies and you’re set for a perfect morning. Don’t forget the SPF — this sunscreen smells amazing!
Baby Shower or Bridal Shower Guest — Baby showers and bridal showers are so much fun and are the perfect occasion to get a little dressy! This clover hued eyelet midi dress is a fabulous choice. Pair it with funky wrap sandals, tassel earrings, and a straw clutch and you are on your way to being quite the fashionable guest! Want to step outside your comfort zone a bit? Try a silk scarf tied around your neck!
Wedding Guest — Wedding season is upon us and this little dress is perfect for an outdoor wedding. Paired with blue accents (heels, bag, and earrings) for an unexpected twist, this ensemble will take you from a teary-eyed ceremony straight to the dance floor. Looking for the perfect shade of pink lip gloss? I received a tube of Winky Lux for Christmas and the formula uses your skins pH to create the perfect shade of pink for you!
Casual Friday — Sometimes jetting off to a tropical paradise isn’t practical or feasible. Use Casual Fridays as a way to take yourself on a much needed break. Pair this gorgeous printed dress with fun accessories (snakeskin printed pumps and tassel earrings) and don’t forget your blazer in case of a last minute meeting. Toss everything in your tote and let the countdown ’til 5 c’clock begin!
Date Night — I love dining alfresco and then taking a stroll with B in the summer. This lemon print dress is so cute and just needs sandals, a round straw purse, and a pair of yellow earrings to complete the look. I like to wear a different perfume on date nights and am currently obsessed with this scent.
Baseball Game — I love taking in a baseball game during the summer months. This gingham shirt dress is both lightweight and stylish. Tennis shoes and sunglasses are a must and a baseball hat for your favorite team is a given. If you’re a true fan, be sure to check out the MLB collection from Dooney and Bourke. Make sure you enjoy a hot dog and cracker jacks at the ball park!
